Dennis Colpitts

Okanagan Symphony Orchestra
Dennis is the conductor for several groups in the city. He leads the Okanagan Symphony Wind Ensemble for the annual UBC Okanagan graduation ceremonies. He loves leading the Kelowna City Band which he took up for the second time over the last decade. Dennis and the band perform many concerts each year including the celebratory Canada Day concert at Prospera Place as well as providing the commemorative music at the Kelowna Cenotaph each Remembrance Day. In fact, Dennis also plays the infamous reveille on a World War One bugle. It was no surprise to the Arts community when Dennis received the Okanagan Arts Award in music in 2015.
